At a moment like that, it will be interesting to see whether or not the Avengers get closer or grow further apart. Tony Stark and Steve Rogers werenâ€™t on speaking terms as it is, and itâ€™s unlikely theyâ€™ll have any reason to reconcile. For that matter, we donâ€™t even know how Tony will get back to Earth after being stranded on Titan.
With time travel expected to play a major role in Avengers 4, that may explain the time jump. An earlier rumor claimed Scott Lang will get sucked into a time vortex within the Quantum Realm and end up five years into the future, where he and Tony will come up with a way to harness the Quantum Realm to go back in time.
Plus, Doctor Strange hinted at there being multiple timelinesâ€”one of which will see the Avengers defeat Thanos. With years taking place between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, that should be enough time for the team to come up with a plan to undo the damage done by Thanos.
Avengers 4 will hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
